Ancestral Puebloans and Anasazi, Southwest U.S.A.

The most famous website in Chaco Canyon is one of the most essential historical sites in the {USA|U. S.A.} and is now home to the biggest historical site of its kind in The United States and Canada. Historically, the region was occupied by the ancestors of Puebliks, better known as the Anasazi. The Navajo group, which has actually resided in ChACO considering that at least the 15th century, is understood for its unspoiled masonry architecture, and the site is a popular tourist destination for visitors from across the United States and Canada. Archaeological exploration of Chaco Canyon began in the late 19th century, when the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) began digging in Pueblo Bonito. There were a couple of thousand Anasazi Indians who formed a political, spiritual, and financial empire spanning more than 3,500 square miles of land spanning Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.

Casa Rinconada & & Pueblo Bonito Chaco Canyon

The Pueblo Bonito rose 4 or 5 stories and most likely housed 1,200 individuals and was built in stages from around 850 to 1150 ADVERTISEMENT.Casa Rinconada & & Pueblo Bonito Chaco Canyon 7550346572334.jpg The Chaco Canyon was the center of a growing culture, and the Chacao Culture National Historic Park, which preserves the remains of the ancient ChACO culture along with the ruins of Hungo Pavi, is located about halfway in between Farmington and Albuquerque. The main attraction of the park are the remarkable sandstone houses, however Pueblo Bonito as the center of the ancient world is a must - see on your own. Due to the desert - like the environment - the area is best seen in late summer and early fall, during the most popular time of the year and in winter season. The gorge is an essential place for the culture of the ancestors of Pueblik and consists of a number of petroglyphs which are marked on its walls. There is a petroglyphic course that leads from the top of Gallo Wash to the bottom of the canyon. Finally, amongst the petroleum types on Gallos Wash are a few little specific niches and homes that were lived in in between 1150 and 1200 AD. It is believed that the architectural style embedded in the rock walls was affected by the populations of the north such as Mesa Verde. The kivas are keyholes - shaped and circular, showing a connection to the northern sites where they were common, and to Pueblik culture in basic.

Fajada Space is located south of Mesa and is among the most popular tourist destinations in Casa Rinconada Chaco Canyon. Fajadas Gap is located at the southern end of Kivi 5, a keyhole - like KIVA of the Pueblik culture in Kiva 5. The educational trail begins at the parking area of Casa Rinconada (see direction below), where there is a car park with a sign for the Fajada Space Interpretive Path. Those with limited time needs to merely take the Tsin Kletsin Path, which begins and climbs up south of Mesa at marker 10 in CasA. I prefer to walk the loop by going up the Tesa to the South Space and then going to Ts in Kletin.
